When it comes to making food i like it to be quick, easy and nutritious. I’m not a huge fan of food that has 101 different ingredients and takes 3 hours to cook. Instead i just want it to be quick… mostly because i don’t really plan what i am going to eat until i am hungry and then i don’t want it to take a long time until i can actually eat.
One of my favourite lazy dinners, or lunches is just to throw the beans and lentils and potatoes which are precooked into a pan and fry – preferably with a whole lot of garlic, ginger and chilli! This is a good way to use potatoes which have begun to taste a little dry or stale from being left in the fridge a few days too long, but also to use up the last of your beans or veggies. An amazing “left overs” meal, where you could even fry up left over pasta or rice instead of potates, and use the last of all the veggies you have at home. When i was younger this is what we used to do at the end of the week before going grocery shopping, but then we would make an omelette or potatoe tortilla out of it… so if you eat eggs, you could do that. But i of course promote going fully plant based and then this vegan meal is a good idea!
Left over potatoes/pasta/rice.
Pre cooked beans & lentils.
Spices: Garlic, salt, black pepper.
Optional: Add tofu, seitan, other soy product.
Sauce: Alpro soya, peanut butter and sweet chili sauce.
Fry everything together in oil and eat warm!
It’s filling, nutritious, takes about 10 minutes to heat and cook. It is filled with protein, fiber, carbs and if you add avocado, nuts/nut butter or if you fry in oil you will be adding healthy fats to make it a complete meal 🙂
This is one of the “behind the scenes/real life” type of meals i eat i.e where everything is mixed together and more real life food, hahah!
